Class Appropriation, or How the Bourgeoisie Commodifies the Art and Culture of the Proletariat. A Discussion Between Walt Whitman, Karl Marx, and Queer Art


Essay, 2016

8 Pages, Grade: 88.0


Abstract or Introduction

I seek to reveal the complex relationship between the bourgeois business world of art and the proletariat artist. Furthermore, I will be commenting on the appropriation and erasure of minorities by those who fetishize art merely for the sake of inflating their own visage of wealthiness. I will do this through a detailed reading of Karl Marx’s Manifesto of the Communist Party alongside the discussion of Walt Whitman tied with an analysis of the works of queer artists, such as Andy Warhol and Robert Mapplethorpe.
